I haven't researched much about the phones yet tbh cos I don't plan on getting it for another few wks but what do you mean when you say screen issues? I've noticed that the Sensation XE is out now and the XL is coming out soon so I'm actually thinking of the XL....I just really like the Sense UI on htc mobiles. Does the SGS2 have something to rival that? I have a Samsung Wave at the mo and it just doesn't match it really imo.
Music on the devices doesn't bother me too much really as I have an iPod.
One last Q for you...I've seen a lot of people give out about how they don't like having to sync with iTunes all the time with the iPhone, but surely this makes life easy as it does everything automatically for you? Am I missing something???
For the Sensation, just google "Sensation screen issues" and you'll see a number of hits about the screen becoming unresponsive after even a couple of weeks. I had a problem with the Hero, about a year after I got it. They replaced the screen under warrenty, but it was enough to make me wary.
I liked the SenseUI on the Hero, and the TouchWizzUI is just Samsungs' version of it. It's grand. The Samsung keyboard I changed for SwiftKeyX. Got the trial for a month, and it's the first app I'm actually considering buying.
I can't stand iTunes. I don't understand what people find so hard about drag and drop. Connect your phone/mp3 player. Select the music. Drop it into the folder on your phone. Done. MP3 files can be played on almost everything now, AAC files cannot play on anything that doesn't have an Apple logo.
You have a Wave at the moment, but that's like comparing a Corsa with an M5. Both do essentially the same thing, but aimed at completely different ends of the spectrum.
Haven't watched the XE & XL develop, but I'd go for the XE being Dual Core, better res screen (while a touch smaller). Internal storage is less, and that's disappointing, but supports up to 32gb SD cards, and comes with a 16gb one.
